If the Description Fits, You Can’t Acquit

Filed under: Entertainment — lmwalker @ 6:40 pm

I’ve never had much of an opinion on O.J. Simpson, but now I do:

Fox plans to broadcast an interview with O.J. Simpson in which the former football star discusses “how he would have committed” the slayings of his ex-wife and her friend, for which he was acquitted, the network said . . .

The interview will air days before Simpson’s new book, “If I Did It,” goes on sale Nov. 30. The book, published by Regan, “hypothetically describes how the murders would have been committed.”

In a video clip on the network’s Web site, an off-screen interviewer says to Simpson, “You wrote ‘I have never seen so much blood in my life.'”

Is he such a has-been that he feels compelled to descend to such level? It’s grotesque. And stupid in the extreme. I didn’t follow the case closely enough to have an opinion on the verdict, but now I am forcefully persuaded that he did, indeed, do it.

I presume that many will share my opinion.

  1. Hmm, I think he’s just trying to recover some of the money that was won in the civil suit. I would do the same thing, although, I probably wouldn’t be so callous as to say how I would have done it. In fact, the only similarity is that I would try to make some monetary gains from the notoriety I had received from such a predicament, in hopes to offset the monetary losses incured during the civil trial.

    So very tired….can’t…think…much…longer….brain…waves….need….replenishment….
